joke of the day
A grasshopper hops into a bar.
The bartender says, "You're quite a celebrity around here. We've even got a drink named after you."
The grasshopper says, "You've got a drink named George?"

Dear Car Psychic: Could you please tell everyone about the dangers of a dirty car? I recently borrowed a friend's car and was grossed out at how dirty the interior was. It smelled like an old dog and the steering wheel was sticky and nasty. I felt like I needed to take a shower after using his car.

Car Psychic: Dear Grossed Out,
The average car is teeming with more germs and mold than a toilet seat. Not surprisingly dog owners have the dirtiest cars. The steering wheel is the dirtiest part and is a festering ground for Staphylococcus .... most commonly associated with nose picking.
P.S. Be thankful you have friends that are able to loan you a car and always wash your hands after driving.
